Tony Tsendeas practically slithers as the opportunistic Buckingham, William LeDent gives depth to Richard’s lackey Catesby, and Rome’s Elizabeth crackles with emotional intensity. After her husband Edward dies and Elizabeth finds herself and her children living at Richard’s whim, Rome plays the former queen as a mother struggling to do whatever she can to keep her children alive—even if it means swallowing her own rage. It’s a wonderfully nuanced performance that goes toe to toe with Reichgott, balancing the play. Jessica Perich, as Anne, does not fare as well. Richard murders her husband and essentially makes her promise to marry him as she walks her husband’s dead body to its grave. Perich’s Anne is angry and shrill, understandable given her character’s circumstances, but too one-note compared to the other performers.
